      House of the Dead 1 & 2 is an amazing re-release of a classic arcade shooter for the Nintendo Wii.

      Though this game was released for multiple platforms it truly underwent a rebirth when it was ported over to the Wii. I never played the House of the Dead series at Arcades, but I am a fan of Classic games so I purchased this game when it came out for


      the Wii. I was very surprised at how well this game, 15+ years old, played on the Nintendo Wii. The use of the Wii’s motion sensors to create an arcade style light gun made me feel like I was really playing the game in an arcade like it was meant to be played.

      The storyline and graphics are corny and outdated, however this adds to the charm of the ...


      • game, as the player knows they are working with a piece of arcade history. However, this is even more relevant to the player when a game over is reached. This is because you are given the option of “inserting credits.” At the arcade this would have been through quarters however with the Wii there is no quarter slot.

        I really wish that the developers had added an unlimited

        credits option, but really this just makes the game more difficult and more fun as well because players are forced to beat the game at all times.

        Overall, I would give House of the Dead 1 & 2 for the Wii an 8 out of 10. Its an amazingly fun title, and one of the only successful rail shooters to be produced since the days of the original Nintendo Entertainment Center.
